Just a little sewing

I had some Thomas the Tank Engine fabric and since little Luc enjoys watching Thomas, I thought I would make him something. He has quite a few little train cars and loads of track. The fabric didn't lend itself to any sort of garment sewing so I figured I would make pillow cases. 
We will be having a second Christmas celebration in January when Luc, his brother Patric, his mother and Auntie Ayla will be here. It appears as if Santa isn't finished yet.

I'm linking up to the last Needle and Thread Network of the year.


  1. If you happen to have any more of the Thomas fabric left, you could make a little toy bag that he could carry his trains and track pieces in. Just an idea! Do you happen to remember where you got the fabric? Methinks I have a little 'un that might just be interested in Thomas at some point.

  2. Hello Dolores,

    Happy New Year. What lovely pillowcases, the boys will love them. The turtle brought back many memories, one of our children had one.

    Happy days.

  3. What a clever idea! I could do that. Or a skirt for one of my girls!

  4. lovely idea, and a great gift, and you have another celebration to come, Somehow I missed your previous post, that "Christmas Star" superb in design and colours. Happy New Year, to you and yours, from Jean in NZ.

  5. Oh Dolores!!! I remember Thomas the tank engine days with love. My boys were so into Thomas and friends.I love any fabric/items Thomas. It's so cute.
    Cheers, Anita.

  6. I remember a Thomas Christmas, about 25 years ago. I think he has some of his engines still.
    Those pillowcases are great.

  7. Cute pillow cases, Dolores! Luc will love them!

  8. Gorgeous Thomas fabric! I've been doing a little sewing myself. Watch my blog for photos in the near future.

  9. Too cute - wish they'd had that fabric when my boys were small. You haven't lived til you've stepped on Thomas in the middle of the night - or any one of the trains - solid metal with pointy bits. Ugh. My oldest even started talking with an English accent, he listened to Ringo Star so much, lol.
